Dehydrated Knopflis

Rating: ****


2 cups white flour

2 eggs

400 ml milk

pinch of salt

2 tbsp. of vegetable oil


- Mix dry ingredients and eggs in a large bowl until there's no more clumps

- Add milk while you stir

- If the mixture is too runny, add more flour. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk.

- Boil water in a medium sized pot

- Add oil to water

- Once well mixed, put some into the knopfli grater

- Scrape the dough through the grater

- Using a spoon with holes in it, fish out the noodles that float to the top

- Put the noodles in a colander

- Repeat steps 6 - 9 until no more dough

- Serve with curry or grated cheese

This worked out much better than I anticipated. The rehydrated noodles are just as good as fresh. The dehydrated noodles are actually pretty good by themselves, but they should not be eaten plain. Some more salt or other flavourful ingredient might turn this into a really great snack food. Be sure to have sauce of some sort ready, as the noodles are not as good plain.
